PR Newswire

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Feb. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Synopsys, Inc. (SNPS), a global leader providing software, IP and services used to accelerate innovation in chips and electronic systems, today reported results for its first quarter of fiscal year 2014.

For the first quarter of fiscal year 2014, Synopsys reported revenue of $479.0 million, compared to $475.1 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2013, an increase of approximately 1 percent.  

"Synopsys began the year with a strong first quarter, featuring continued customer successes and excellent progress preparing for a number of upcoming product announcements," said Aart de Geus, chairman and co-CEO of Synopsys. "While customers are cautious in their spending, technology demands continue unabated, making great EDA and IP solutions essential for their success."

GAAP Results

On a generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) basis, net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 was $67.7 million, or $0.43 per share, compared to $69.9 million, or $0.45 per share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2013.

Non-GAAP Results

On a non-GAAP basis, net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 was $93.1 million, or $0.59 per share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $103.0 million, or $0.67 per share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2013.  Reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP results is provided at the end of this press release. 

Fiscal first quarter 2013 GAAP and non-GAAP results included the impact of the reinstatement of the federal R&D tax credit for 2012 and 2013.

Financial Targets

Synopsys also provided its financial targets for the second quarter and full fiscal year 2014.  These targets do not include any impact of future acquisition-related activities or costs that may be incurred in fiscal year 2014. These targets constitute forward-looking statements and are based on current expectations.  For a discussion of factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from these targets, see "Forward-Looking Statements" below.

Second Quarter of Fiscal Year 2014 Targets:

  • Revenue: $505 million - $515 million
  • GAAP expenses: $422 million - $444 million
  • Non-GAAP expenses: $377 million - $387 million
  • Other income and expense: $0 - $1 million
  • Tax rate applied in non-GAAP net income calculations: approximately 24 percent
  • Fully diluted outstanding shares: 155 million - 159 million
  • GAAP earnings per share: $0.33- $0.41
  • Non-GAAP earnings per share: $0.60 - $0.62

Full Fiscal Year 2014 Targets:

  • Revenue: $2.03 billion - $2.065 billion
  • Other income and expense: $8 million - $11 million
  • Tax rate applied in non-GAAP net income calculations: approximately 24 percent
  • Fully diluted outstanding shares: 155 million - 159 million
  • GAAP earnings per share: $1.72 - $1.83
  • Non-GAAP earnings per share: $2.55 - $2.60
  • Cash flow from operations: $425 million - $450 million

GAAP Reconciliation

Synopsys continues to provide all information required in accordance with GAAP, but believes evaluating its ongoing operating results may not be as useful if an investor is limited to reviewing only GAAP financial measures. Accordingly, Synopsys presents non-GAAP financial measures in reporting its financial results to provide investors with an additional tool to evaluate Synopsys' operating results in a manner that focuses on what Synopsys believes to be its ongoing business operations and what Synopsys uses to evaluate its ongoing operations and for internal planning and forecasting purposes. Synopsys' management does not itself, nor does it suggest that investors should, consider such non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Synopsys' management believes it is useful for itself and investors to review, as applicable, both GAAP information that includes: (i) the amortization of acquired intangible assets, (ii) the impact of stock compensation, (iii) acquisition-related costs, including inventory fair value adjustments, (iv) other significant items, including facilities restructuring and the effect of tax settlements with tax authorities, and (v) the income tax effect of non-GAAP pre-tax adjustments as well as unusual or infrequent tax adjustments; and the non-GAAP measures that exclude such information in order to assess the performance of Synopsys' business and for planning and forecasting in subsequent periods. Whenever Synopsys uses a non-GAAP financial measure, it provides a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measure to the most closely applicable GAAP financial measure. Investors are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measure as detailed below.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release and our upcoming earnings results conference call contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.  Any statements that are not statements of historical fact may be deemed to be forward-looking statements.  Forward-looking statements include but are not limited to: sections of this press release entitled "Financial Targets" and "Reconciliation of Target Non-GAAP Operating Results"; and statements regarding Synopsys' business, acquisitions, products, technologies, business model, customer demand for our technology, and projected financial results and business objectives.  These statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause our actual results, time frames or achievements to differ materially from those expressed or implied in our forward-looking statements.  Accordingly, we caution stockholders and prospective investors not to place undue reliance on these statements.  Such risks, uncertainties and factors include, but are not limited to:

  • continued uncertainty in the global economy and its potential impact on the semiconductor and electronics industries;
  • uncertainty in the growth of the semiconductor and electronics industry;
  • increased competition in the market for Synopsys' products and services including through consolidation in the industry and among our customers;
  • changes in demand for Synopsys' products due to fluctuations in demand for its customers' products;
  • Synopsys' ability to realize the potential financial or strategic benefits of acquisitions it completes and in the integration of the products and operations of acquired companies or assets into Synopsys' products and operations, including delays in customer orders, potential loss of customers, key employees, partners or vendors, customer demand and support obligations for product offerings, and disruption of ongoing business operations and diversion of management attention;
  • adverse changes in the relationships between Synopsys and key participants in the complex semiconductor ecosystem, including major foundries and intellectual property providers;
  • litigation;
  • lower-than-anticipated new IC design starts;
  • lower-than-anticipated purchases or delays in purchases of products or consulting services by Synopsys' customers, including delays in the renewal, or non-renewal, of Synopsys' license arrangements with major customers;
  • changes in the mix of time-based licenses and upfront licenses;
  • variability in the timing of revenue recognition due to factors such as payment terms and the timing and value of contract renewals and professional services projects;
  • lower-than-expected orders; and
  • failure of customers to pay license fees as scheduled.

In addition, Synopsys' actual expenses, earnings per share and tax rate on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis for the fiscal quarter ending April 30, 2014; actual expenses, earnings per share, tax rate, and other projections on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis for fiscal year 2014; and cash flow from operations on a GAAP basis for fiscal year 2014 could differ materially from the targets stated under "Financial Targets" above for a number of reasons, including, but not limited to, (i) integration and other acquisition-related costs, (ii) application of the actual consolidated GAAP and non-GAAP tax rates for such periods, or judgment by management, based upon the status of pending audits and settlements to increase or decrease an income tax asset or liability, (iii) a determination by Synopsys that any portion of its goodwill or intangible assets have become impaired, (iv) changes in the anticipated amount of employee stock-based compensation expense recognized in Synopsys' financial statements, (v) actual change in the fair value of Synopsys' non-qualified deferred compensation plan obligations, (vi) increases or decreases to estimated capital expenditures, (vii) changes driven by new accounting rules, regulations, interpretations or guidance, (viii) fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates, (ix) general economic conditions, and (x) other risks as detailed in Synopsys' SEC filings, including those described in the "Risk Factors" section in its latest Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended Oct. 31, 2013. Furthermore, Synopsys' actual tax rates applied to income for the second quarter and fiscal year 2014 could differ from the targets given in this press release as a result of a number of factors, including the actual geographic mix of revenue during the quarter and year, and actions by the government.

Finally, Synopsys' targets for outstanding shares in the second quarter and fiscal year 2014 could differ from the targets given in this press release as a result of higher than expected employee stock plan issuances or stock option exercises, acquisitions, and the extent of Synopsys' stock repurchase activity.

Synopsys is under no obligation to (and expressly disclaims any such obligation to) update or alter any of the forward-looking statements made in this earnings release, the conference call or the financial supplement whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, unless otherwise required by law.
